What To Expect

At CUCOH we strive to provide a unique and engaging conference experience that is unlike any conference our delegates have been to before. We are all about striking that balance between learning, such as through our inspirational keynotes, with more social moments, like our Gala and Nightlife events. We offer our delegates that much needed change of pace from the rigours of undergraduate life, with something new, to remind them of how exciting the field of healthcare truly is!

While the majority of our conference is spent together as a group, we offer moments where delegates can shape their experience with our more interactive activities which we call our Breakout Sessions.

When our delegates register for our conference they will be able to pick workshop rotations and topics for our case challenges that fit their interests to make our conference uniquely their own! CUCOH is always evolving so even if our delegates have attended before, our offerings and speakers change each year to keep things fresh, and provide them with reasons to come back.

You can get an idea of what a typical day at CUCOH is like and how all these activities come together to create a unique conference experience below.
